Is your business compliant with the Fair Work Act?

Are your business practices compliant?

The Fair Work Ombudsman is about to begin auditing 100's more businesses in their national campaign to check compliance with Australia's Fair Work Act.

The three-month campaign will be checking to ensure employers are paying the correct minimum hourly rates, penalty rates, allowances and loadings and providing appropriate meal breaks to employees. Compliance with record-keeping and pay-slip obligations will also be monitored.

Fair Work Ombudsman Natalie James says "employers must make an effort to ensure they understand the minimum wages applicable to their workplace. Minimum pay rates are non-negotiable and they apply to everyone regardless of nationality and visa status."

Who is the Fair Work Ombudsman?

The Fair Work Ombudsman is an independent statutory agency, separate from the Fair Work Commission. The Fair Work Ombudsman is the agency responsible for providing education, assistance and advice about the Commonwealth workplace relations system. The Fair Work Ombudsman is also responsible for impartially enforcing compliance with the Fair Work Act 2009 and fair work instruments.

What are the penalties?

Do you have a spare $20,000 lying around? Not many business owners do, but fines enforced by the Fair Work Ombudsman can be as hefty as that if you are found non-compliant.

How do I find out if my business practices are compliant?

I specialise in confidential auditing of small and medium sized businesses for compliance with Fair Work Act and the WHS Act.
